Hike at Three Creeks Conservation Area

E. Deer Park Road Columbia, MO 65205 Web Site Phone:[masked] Open daily: 4 a.m.-10 p.m. Latitude: 38° 51' 3" Longitude: -92° 16' 33"

The quick directions are take Hwy 63 and go west onto Dear Park Road (make a left if you are coming from Jefferson City) . Some of the road will be unpaved. Follow it until you see the conservation. Look for the first parking area.

Three Creeks Conservation Area is located in Boone County, halfway between Columbia and Ashland. The 1,500-acre area takes its name from the three creeks that run through it: Turkey Creek, Bass Creek and Bonne Femme Creek. The rugged forest features scenic bluffs, intermittent streams, geologic formations and old easter red cedar trees. The area features include an eight-mile multi-use trail open to biking, hiking and equestrian use, as well as a three-mile interpretive hiking trail.

Why not hike somewhere new. Lets meet up at 2:30 and hike for about one and a half hours. Maybe 45 minutes in and then turn around.

You are encouraged to wear shoes you can take off and put in a bag, etc for cleaning later. Unless it is terrible weather, I plan on doing this hike. This is what it means to be adventurous.

My cell number is[masked] and I will have a blue balloon.

    The Weather should be in the high fifties. It should be dry and excellent weather for a hike.
    Thanks Carolyn. Might take you up and a dual hike in the future.
